Scone loan

I asked a friend

for the loan of a scone,

I said he could have it back

when I had done;

he refused my request,

and not even my behest and assurances that I would replace it with a familiar or similar,

it it were damaged beyond repair,

would make him change his mind;

he did not care.

They do say Scone Love is blind.


He looked at me, then,

as a wise man looks at a stopped clock

trying to pinpoint exactly

when is Pimm’s O’Clock.
